“The Clay Canvas” Sgraffito Workshop with Alissa Mittl Register Here May 24, 2020: 10:00am – 4:30pm * EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH 3/24/2020 * $145.00 Early Bird Nonmembers (includes lunch) $115.00 Early Bird Members (includes lunch) $165.00 Nonmembers (includes lunch) $135.00 Members (includes lunch) In this one-day workshop, students will learn how clay can be treated as a two-dimensional canvas using sgraffito carving techniques. The term sgraffito originates from the Italian term graffiare meaning “to scratch.” It is a ceramic carving technique in which the colored, leather-hard surface is scratched through to reveal the clay body underneath. Using underglazes and carving techniques, Alissa will demonstrate how to build visually upon the ceramic surface to create depth and detailed imagery. An interest in drawing is encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary! All materials included. Register Here About the Ranch Reitz Ranch is comprised of 14 acres on the beautiful Verde River in Clarkdale, Az. Nestled between Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, and Sedona, the ranch offers easy access from any spot here in the heart of Arizona wine country. With a remote feel, the ranch is still within a 20 minute drive of stores, restaurants, and nightspots. Built on the bones of a working ranch, the rich heritage of the ranch is apparent everywhere you look. A bunkhouse built over 100 years ago out of river rock, well pump handles, and literally hundreds of Don’s “porch pots” add to the experience. Whether you’re a beginning potter, advanced hobbyist, or working professional, then ranch can meet your needs. A well-equipped open studio, a wood fired kiln selection, and most importantly, a helpful community of wonderful people with the same interests will make you feel right at home.
